    "Great dog walks on your doorstep and nearby pubs and food would definitely go back. It's a lot bigger than the pictures make it look."

    "Beautiful barn conversion. Extremely friendly hosts who were most helpful. There were lots of unexpected extras such as croissants, milk, prosecco, fruit, flowers, amazing toiletries, games, books, all very touching. The area is stunning with plenty to do and lovely scenery and walks. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday, enjoyed the hot tub every evening and can't wait to return."

    "Lovely king size beds. Extremely dog friendly, even provided dog biscuits, treats, bowls and towels. Lovely big, secure garden for dogs. Park and ride two minutes away, very handy for Durham. Two good pubs around the corner, one serving enormous portions of food! Stairs a little steep for elderly, so just be careful. Will be happy to return here in the future."

    "We've just returned from this cottage and it was absolutely fantastic. From walking through the door we were completely at home. An amazing welcome pack was waiting for us with tea,coffee, milk, fruit, wine and beer but also a selection of jams, sauces and butter. The cottage is amazingly spacious and well equipped. The hot tub hadn't been installed when we booked so it was a lovely surprise a week before we went to be told it was there - the owners even supplied the towels for this along with an endless supply of wood. We were lucky with the weather so were out and about every day and the cottage was ideally situated for sightseeing in the area. I wish John and Tracey every success with this and your other new cottages."

    "We felt at home from the moment that we arrived with an amazing welcoming pack. Every detail had been thought of for the guest's benefits. The hot tub hadn't been fitted when we booked the property so it was a lovely surprise to find out a week before we went that we had it and the towels were provided too. The owners live on site so are there if you need anything but they're not intrusive, John ensured we had a plentiful supply of wood for the hot tub! I recommend this cottage 100%"
